Georgia Writers Museum

  Every story starts somewhere...

In 2011, a group of concerned business owners and citizens of Eatonton and Putnam County, Georgia formed  the Eatonton - Putnam Tourism, Arts, and Heritage Partnership. The purpose of the group was to brainstorm for ways to showcase the county's assets and to create destination venues for visitors.
The art committee of EPTAHP evolved into The Briar Patch Arts Council. BPAC has proposed several art related projects. The first major project is the Georgia Writers Museum.

In April, 2014, The Georgia Writers Museum opened in a temporary location at 109 S. Jefferson
Avenue in downtown Eatonton. A lease with the county has been signed to relocate to the historic Eatonton Hotel in the future. In the hotel, GWM will occupy all three floors which will include permanent exhibits honoring the three famous local area authors, plus additional space for rotating temporary exhibits, conference and meeting space, a gift shop, book store, offices and a proposed cafe. GWM is pursuing grants and donations to refurbish the building, furnish and procure exhibit materials and memorabilia.

We need the help of the community, both financially and by volunteering your time.

The Georgia Writers Museum is a 501(c)3, non-profit.
